Be Impeccable with Your Word

“Words may show a man’s wit but actions his meaning.”

Benjamin Franklin

“The distance between saying you’ll help someone and actually helping them is a gap often created with the best intentions. But when we don’t bridge that gap, accountability suffers throughout the organization. Our desire to help might make it tempting to tell someone we’ll do something, but we should always be impeccable with our word .

Automattic Creed

Have you ever said you would do something, but for whatever reason you ended up not delivering?

Maybe you promised to finish a project but couldn’t keep the deadline or said yes to an event you really didn’t want to go to.

It’s a painful experience when you can’t deliver on something you agreed to. Even with the best intentions, if you can’t back up your words with your actions, then your word will lose all credibility.

It’s better to go with your gut and say no to an opportunity you know isn’t the right fit, rather than try to impress and be sorry you can’t deliver. Delivery is everything.

Don’t talk about what you are going to do, talk about what you are doing.
